    How 2

    Someone must have watched this.
    That's how, for now. Also, whilst on the subject, I wonder how many people remember Elidor which was on the BBC in the early 1990s. And Earthfasts which was similar.

    Too busy surrendering your lunch money to any foreign child who crossed your path, one assumes.

    Nope, but I am currently taking a massive ride down nostalgia lane.

    Does anyone else play a game on Wikipedia where they think of something there'll be a Wikipedia page about, then press random page and try to get to what you thought about just by clicking the links?

    Like I thought of Taylor Swift, and pressing random page game me this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...nt_video_games

    I then clicked the progression as follows:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberta_Williams
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_the_United_States
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Pennsylvania

    and finally to my aim of:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Swift

    So I made it in 5 clicks. Does anyone else do this or am I just an incredibly sad person?

    I prefer the Wikipedia 'Get to Philosophy' game.

    Pick any article whatsoever and click the first non-parenthesized, non-italicized link.

    Rinse and repeat. 94.5% of all articles will eventually end up at the Wikipedia page on Philosophy.
